From my understanding anything that is hard or dense works best. I plan on going with a lighter wood and doing a little bit of dampening with paxmate and dynamat like I did for the Rastapants 2. Doing it that way won't result in the signature sound that is the Thunderpants, but oh well. I prefer the Thunderpants more for their aesthetics than anything else. As long as I get a nice sound with thumpin' bass I'm happy.
